We have two fun Netflix Transformers series related tidbits to share. Firstly, as a few members have informed us, such as Mindmaster and Verno, that the cybertronian letters in the posters we recently saw spell out Kingdom, which is the name of the third part of the War for Cybertron trilogy, according to the rumours we posted earlier. Transformers fan Protoman made a nice photo to show this, which you can see below.

Secondly we have a brand new Japanese trailer for the series, which Sabrblade sent our way. You can view it here.

Japanese trailer, featuring all new footage.

Note that the characters all use their Hasbro names, so no "Convoy", "Bumble", "Cybertron", "Destron", etc. It's all "Optimus Prime", "Bumblebee", "Autobot", "Decepticon", etc.

Megatron's Japanese voice is nice and deep

I kinda like the energy of this trailer more than the other ones.

They got Tessho Genda to do Optimus Prime....I may watch this in Japanese with subs if that is an option, sounds better than the English voice cast.

Interestingly enough, it's Hōchū Ōtsuka, who has played the likes of Ultra Magnus in Transformers: The Headmasters, Guyhawk in Transformers: Victory, and huge amount of other roles in anime, video games, and Japanese dubs of Western media.

Optimus, meanwhile, is of course Tesshō Genda, reprising his role of Optimus from the G1 cartoon and live action movies, as well as many other roles of his own.

Sadly, they couldn't get Megatron's original Japanese G1 voice actor, Seizō Katō, due to his passing away back in 2014.

Does this sorta confirm WFC 3 as being the Beast Wars themed one?

Confirmed. "Kingdom" is the official name for Part 3 of the War for Cybertron Trilogy web cartoon.

And the wording in the tweet makes it clear they are referring to the animal kingdom.

Thanks to a tweet from the account @NXOnNetflix, we have official confirmation of the next line in the War for Cybertron Trilogy franchise: Kingdom! It shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, given the poster that we reported on earlier had the franchise name right on it. The tweet (which you can view by clicking on the picture below) has a new video as well, which takes the posters with Cybertronian lettering, and changes them into English letters which, of course, spell out KINGDOM. Furthering the connection to Beast Wars are two emojis, of a gorilla, and a Tyrannosaurus.

So are you excited for the franchise to revisit the fan favorite series? Let us know what you think below!

Wow, we're getting all these teases before an Earthrise show is announced...and we haven't even seen the first episode of Siege yet!

Still, if Kingdom manages to do some good storytelling as well as make the characters stand out from the G1 crew (even if they won't be like the old show), then I'd probably stomach Kingdom better than I would Siege and potentially Earthrise. We'll see.

I'm sure that's Netflix's fault. The series was originally supposed to be streamed in full on June 30 and probably Earthrise would have been previewed immediately after making the Kingdom reveal a little more timely. But Netflix just had to wait for all of the foreign dubs to finish and we ended up with everything out of order.

I just hope that between this and SS86 we get a Leader Rodimus Prime in the vein of the original toy, a screen-accurate Voyager Wreck-Gar, a show-accurate Sandstorm, and the remaining Minibots.

I have to say I'm a bit relieved. The past several years have been great for collecting but not for my bank account. Not being a Beast Wars fan, I'll be glad to save a bit of money for awhile.

Time to save some money, at least! I hate the BW line :lol:

Big Brain Time:

The first WFC fan vote had 3 options, and there were 3 sub-lines. Mirage and Impactor were released in Siege, along with Spinister (who might be a bumped up Earthrise figure since Wave 5 was a new addition), and Wheeljack was released in Earthrise. Tracks and Needlenose for Kingdom confirmed.

Agreed. It’s disappointing the trilogy finishes this way, but it will be nice to save a bunch of money. Hopefully we’ll see Blaster and his minions sometime soon, maybe at the tail end of Earthrise.

I am surprised there are so many people that think they’ll save lots of money when Kingdom comes. I bet many will surprise themselves and may even accept Beast alt modes.....as a G1er and new fan of BW/BM, I am definitely all in!

I'm a lot more interested in seeing new takes on BW figures than slightly altered G1 characters yet again.

I wouldn't say I hate it, but I'm definitely not at all interested... I mean I really couldn't care less... BW might as well be BeyBlades in my eyes.

But yeah, definitely interested in saving some cashola!
With this being official, who knows; if the leader class spoiler figure isn't Galvatron, I may end up getting ER Smokescreen afterall.
